Catch more trout Berkley®'s easy-to-use PowerBait® Glitter Trout Bait. While the glitter catches and reflects light to increase visibility, this floating trout bait disperses its advanced PowerBait scent and flavor enhancers to attract trout from distance.
Powerbait is my go-to bait when my lures aren't pulling their weight. This bait works well for trout, but I've also learned it's great for getting a nice stringer full of good-sized panfish. I prefer either Chartreuse or rainbow. I also like to sit the bait out without the lid on so it hardens and stays on my hook longer. My Uncle caught 33 trout in a single day using yellow Powerbait. Thumbs up to Berkley for another fantastic product.

great product, picky fish
I bought most of my Powerbait in-store at Bass Pro and a couple of small buisnesses. I've heard that this catches trout like magic, however you will have to experiment with different colors and types. I spent around 40 bucks to find two bottles that work. When I did find the two I ran out in three days and had to replace them. Great buy, when you find the good colors. I found instead of rigging it to float, put two size14-10 treble hooks a foot apart with a bank sinker 8 inches from the lower hook and use different kinds of Powerbait.

Trout killer of a bait
As a long time Powerbait user, this is the best stuff out there bar-none. The fact that it'll stick to a size 16 or 18 gold treble hook better than most other baits including velveeta cheese is worth the price itself. No more seeing your bait fly one way while your rig goes another on the cast. Plus, I've had multiple cases where it stays on even after being nibbled on, then the fish comes back to engulf it all, resulting in a hookup! Lasts a long time and doesn't dry up as long as the lid is placed back on after each use.

There are many ways to rig it, my favorite was described in my review, tie two size 14-10 trebble hooks a foot apart with a bank sinker 8 inches down from the lower hook, cast and keep your line tight. this method can be hard to travel with, so I tied a swivel with a snap to the end of my line an set up the hooks before I go out and put a swivel without a snap on te end of that setup
I found this bait works best when fished from shore. The method I use is as follows: Using a maximum of 8lb mono on your reel, thread the line though a 1/2oz lead egg sinker and tie the end to a double ended brass barrel swivel. The the other end of the swivel, tie a 12 to 15 inch leader of 2 to 6lb mono, then put a gold treble hook on the end (I use size 14, 16, or 18 depending on the trout size). The bait will float off the bottom, keeping it out of the weeds, and the fish will feel little resistance when it takes the bait. I like putting the rod in a rod holder, letting some slack off the line so the fish doesn't feel anything behind the bait, and sometimes put a small red & white bobber hanging from the line betwen the 1st and 2nd eyes from the reel on the rod, that way it rises as the line gets taught (fish bites the bait), then it's HOOKUP!!. Happy fishing!! Dave
This is just like any baits, trial and error. Over the years I've used just about every color of PowerBait made. Some days white works, some days yellow, and others rainbow, etc., etc.. Personally yellow non-glitter has worked the best for me, but my fishing buddy swears by pink. Some lakes have better success with some colors...then it might change the next day. Take a variety with you and try them for maybe 30 minutes at a time and stick to anything that gets bit. Happy fishing! Dave
Personally, I don't beileve in colors as much as the glitter flash and scent that the bait gives off. I've caught trout with every color I've used. I do though get better results with brighter colors such as chartruese, pink, orange, etc. Only reason I can think of is maybe because it's easier for them to see. Hopefully this helps.
